I trust you are well and enjoying this glorious weather.
Bluelite is participating in the Wacky Rally Barmy to Barcelona 2019. The object is to buy an old banger for under £ 300 and drive it across 9 countries gaining points for challenges as you go. I think it is something like the Top Gear challenges. http://www.wackyrally.co.uk/barmy-barcelona-2019
The route is 1500 miles, through one of the Alps highest passes, French Riviera, Costa Brava and finally ending in Barcelona, where they leave the car.
Steve and John have gone in the attached vehicle (you also had to custom it and they are dressing up as well – more points J) no air conditioning!!! There is around 65 cars taking part, festivals organised and accommodation, so all being well it should be great fun.
We do hope to see them back next week, they do not have a plan B so it could be a long walk to Barcelona if they break down. It is just a little bit of fun – I hope!
Maybe next year there might be a few from the Business Park that would want to join us.
I will let you know how they got on – there are prizes for the winner.
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
